Hi Terry,Hi Lyn,
This is Terry Newis. Second cornet player. Wonder what happened to mr Hepburn (Wally) the music teacher. I can't understand why such a new school building was discontinued after such a short time. I went back there about five years ago and looked at the buildings for old times sake. V.sad.
Of course I remember you John. Especially your tale of how you failed one of your exams due to a heavy cold and had to use the paper as a hankerchief.Hi Terry,
Dunno if you remember me?
John Thatcher... we were in the same class at Stanmore.
Remember hunting round the market for German stamps because we thought they'd be worth a fortune in the future?
Hahaha, yes, shyness was always my undoing! Mr Challoner came to my rescue by going and getting me some tissue. I think my exam paper was unmarkable by that time, though!Of course I remember you John. Especially your tale of how you failed one of your exams due to a heavy cold and had to use the paper as a hankerchief.
I still have the German stamps. They are still worth next to nothing.
Do you still have that wonderful memory or are you like me and losing it rapidly. Time creeps up on you.
I noted there is a web site on google with Paul Felton photographer. I wonder if he is our class mate.
I am living in London now so I am a long way from home.
Excellent to hear from you.
